New Things for Spring

Hi guys! So, earlier this month, I felt like I wasn't going to buy much. I loved the idea of using what I already had, and I have a lot of stuff that I really like! But then after I lost my dad, I seemed to use shopping to help me feel better, and I ended up buying more than I expected to. I don't feel badly about seeking out these mostly soft, comforting clothes; I'm just going with it and moving forward.

I haven't received most of these yet, but this is what I've purchased and ordered for spring:

Spring 2016

Top row, left to right:

Middle row:
6. Athleta Lively dress. I got this for our trip to Cancun, and it was great. It's super comfortable and easy to wear, and not too clingy. It's not wrinkle-proof, but it doesn't wrinkle badly. 
8. J. Crew Factory green linen-cotton skirt. I have only tried this on so far, but I think it's going to go with everything and get a lot of use.
10. Athleta Astra dress. I haven't worn this one yet.
11. Athleta Lively dress. Same dress as #6, in a different color.

Bottom row:
14. Athleta foldover skirt. I got this jersey skirt for our vacation trip, and I love that it has slits on both sides. The slits make it so much easier to walk in or run up and down stairs.  
16. J. Crew Factory skinny white ankle jeans. I can picture wearing these with so many kinds of tops and shoes. I think they're going to make a lot of different outfits.

I'll update you as these arrive and I see if I'll keep everything. Of course I want to only keep things that fit really well and that I want to wear a lot. I don't have room in my closet or my budget for clothes that just sit in my closet forever. 

As far as style goes, you can see that I'm drawn to mostly comfortable, soft clothes. I'm curious about how those cropped wide-legged jeans and pants are going to look. I hope they work out, so I can play with that silhouette. 

I'll be adding in more from my stored clothes and I'll try to get a capsule picked out pretty soon.

Are you wearing spring clothes yet, or is it still cold where you live?
